There are grizzly bears on Rick’s river and we do view them on a regular basis. The trails we use to travel along the river are also used by the grizzlies as this photo shows. And if you look under Ricks left arm holding the salmon he is not carrying a camera in a shoulder holster.
Special effects make photography interesting. And it nice to be on a trip that allows the interest to be fulfilled. The schedules trips from Grizzly Bear Lodge are flexible. We like to be away from the lodge by 8:00 and back in time for rest before dinner. What happens in between those two times depends on the wildlife we find and the interest of the guests. Our boats a limited to four guests so it is not hard to achieve agreement to modify the days activities.
Once we arrive at the dock and meet Trapper Rick there is a twenty minute ride to the river crossing to Rick’s cabin. This may mean a truck or ATV and as you can see by the happy smiles on the ATV this was a good choice. Once we arrive at and cross the river there is a short walk to Rick’s cabin. Just below the cabin falls is a good location for those who are interested in fishing on the river. Or photography – see tomorrows….
Interesting in the change of water colours from yesterdays photo but the time stamp on the photo says the first photo in today’s post was taken 6 minutes after the leaping dolphin in yesterdays post. And the second photo was taken in the morning two days later on a whale watching tour. Some guests are lucky and get two great dolphin shows. I have been guiding at the lodge for fifteen years and the dolphins still make the day special and from guest comments it seems that they agree.
This is a great site to visit to get a “guest eye view” of a trip to our lodge.
